walsh, editor at large at "salon.com," msnbc analyst. and dana milbank, editor for "washington post." >>> dana, let me go to you first. weren't president obama's nominations today a perfect example of how elections have consequences? >> well, sitting where i'm sitting, not in the clint eastwood chair, i would say yes, it certainly does. it's a case of continuing a very tough policy of enforcement at the sec. so the president is sending a signal that at least in this area of regulation enforcement, he's not going to be backing down at all. surely, that's exactly what wall street and corporate america expected when he won that election. >> and that was the way he campaigned. in many ways, we're looking at, joan, him continuing the path that he campaign ds oed on, gots on and won. look at the poll on rights for gay people, 60%. on aid to the poor, 59%, on tax levels for millionaires and big corporation, 59%. women's issue, 55%. immigration, 55%. i mean, these are high numbers of people feeling the gop is out of touch on these issues. >> yeah, i mean, reverend al, the shocking thing is,
chosen to just go quiet and sort of back away from the debate. >> dana, if you exclude his re-election as speaker, tomorrow marks the four-week anniversary since he made a public appearance. in that time the president of the united states no less has made 11. is there a strategy behind the retreat of the happless speaker? >> the problem here is for he goes out there, he's going to find all these daggers in his back from his own membership. so that's why he's been rather quiet now. he's meeting with -- privately with his members down in williamsburg at a retreat right now. it's a problem overall for the republican party because they don't have a very clear leader. it's not clear exactly what policies they would pursue other than saying no to whatever the president is pursuing. now, they're still going to be plenty capable to what the president is proposing, but they're just waiting for it to get to the house so they can do that. >> excellent. joy, we did hear after the election from the great reince prieb priebus, chair of the rnc, who said the republican party would start reac
be for less spending and at the same time, not sound hostile to women and minority voters vj. >> dana, when you look at the exit polling from november's election, republicans lost african americans by 87 points. lost hispanics by 44 points. if you were in williamsburg, how would you turn this around? >> here's what i wouldn't have done, reverend al. they had this session on reaching out to minorities and they held it in a room named for slave plantation which the only thing better than that would be if they have the breakout sessions after that and all retired to lunch in the bull connor ballroom. it is the whole concept is if they'll just change the message a little bit. it's not a matter of dressing it up and putting pretty colors and a bow on it. it's the policy that's gotten them into trouble, particularly in regards to immigration and latinos. >> it's not a matter of dressing it up. it's a matter of what the policies are. >> now, you see, margie, even the conservative women are speaking out against their party. most women on the panel express exasperation that the republican party was
. and succeeding. >>> dana, today, i watched a vice president running for president. i saw a number of occurrences, sotomayor, of course, being asked to give an oath. all kinds of signs that he might be interested in running. his kinetic performance on the parade route today is evidence to me he's retailing his way to the presidency. your thoughts? >> unfortunately, the the crowd loved him and also loved hillary. i'm not sure it guarantees him anything. he's really enjoying with the signing in ceremonies on the hill. i'm not so sure he's doing it to campaign. he's doing it because he's joe biden. and he loves doing this stuff and he can't believe he's getting as much attention as he is for doing this. but this is genuine joe biden. >> let's stick to my preface, that he's running. and my premise is the following. if biden and obama made such an overt move to run. i think he's creating what was called new facts. he's creating the fact that i'm running. and then once he does that, hillary, secretary clinton, has to decide whether she wants it a primary fight. i still think she'll probably run. but is
. joining me dana will bank and former san francisco mayor willie brown. i want to go to mayor brown on this. it just seems to me there are other reasons to have lists of people buying guns, especially semiautomatic rifles, mayor. they have fingerprints on people out there. we don't collect people's hands. this is an absurd lie. of course there are reasons to want to know who buys certain guns. maybe we should have ballistic tests on everything so we have know who kills somebody. your thoughts. are they crazy or smart or both? >> no, i think they're absolutely crazy. i think they are desperately trying as best they can to overcome what obviously is a movement towards some form of gun control, no matter how modest. the most recent incidents involving people who obviously were out of their minds using weapons on children and otherwise has caused panic among the gunowners of america. and in particular, the man whom you had quoted just a minute ago. his reaction is exactly that, of a desperate person trying to stave off what has turned into a basically popular movement. >> you know, if someone c

, dana millbank and his senior partner and msnbc political analyst, euge eugene robinson. there is an animal husbandry as pekt. the people vote -- is it just that we've gotten to a situation in this country where primary is all you've got? if there's a wide field in the primary and a nutty guy wins it, he's in or she's in for life. so if stockman wins a primary, will it with a wide field? crazy after all of these years? >> that's exactly what happened. he was this guy, in the past, he was homeless, eating out of trash cans, had a drug arrest, long rap sheet. they didn't really pay attention. he just got elected in the republican revolution. wait a second, and they got rid of him. you know what, you can't do that anymore. this guy has a safe seat for life. the only way he doesn't get reelected is if he gets bumped out in a primary. >> did somebody get to this guy's right? >> the thing is -- you can't. the thing is he's now a member in good standing of the republican caucus. he's not some nut out there. he's in the mainstream. >> i have some sense of taste. some. and when i
. from the washington post piece by dana millbank, barack obama. in 2009, a french news agency ran a piece hitled an american president. and then radio host gerald geraldo rivera first dubbed him the first hispanic president. and there are many more first term firsts for president obama, some serious, some not quite so siers at all. >> it doesn't matter whether you're black or white or hispanic or asian or native american or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in america if you're willing to try. >> i urge you to choose chicago. i urge you to choose america. and if you do, if we walk this path together, then i promise you this, the city of chicago and the united states of america will make the world proud. >> this was really convenient. i can't tell you who i voted for. >> i don't have a cell phone. >> i can get you one. i know a guy. >> they let me have a blackberry, but they disable all of the recording devices in there. >> yeah. ork. >> because there's some secret squirrel stuff going on there. >> and then to know that reverend al

rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively creased to exist." dana milbank writes in the washington post that stockman was once considered too radical for congress, which is why he only served one term in the mid 1990s, but he is not too crazy for this congress. as milbank notes, "what's frightening is that stockman no longer sounds like an outliar." with reactionary statements that seem at times unhinged from reality, congressman stockman fits in just fine. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers. they didn't want to let the president become a king. >> i'm afraud that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing, and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> maria theresa, it's like, you know, i feel like i -- we played a little bit of sound from rachel maddow last night, my distinguished colleague. she floats the theory that this is part of the strategy is just raise the hackles of liberals, of the media and get them to sort of pay attention to the nonsincere spewing, and really there's no ideal
